Glad to hear it worked.

It's not so much something that should be documented, as something that 
should give a useful error message when it happens, or should handle the 
error and start correctly.

Adding additional rights should *NOT* cause the Pg service to fail. If 
it's decided that it should for security reasons, a conf flag should be 
available to allow those who genuinely feel they need the added privs to 
enable them. A useful error should be emitted.

That said, I find developing on Windows to be a lot like a dentist visit 
without anesthetic, so I'm not going to be stepping up to implement it 
;-) .
